How do I know if I am eligible for the Resolute procedure?
At Pure Body Transformation, we use body mass index (BMI) as a criteria for surgery – excess weight in relation to height. Individuals are candidates for surgery if:
- They have failed previous attempts at weight loss and
- Their BMI is greater than 30
Before becoming eligible for surgery, you will meet with our surgeon for a full medical evaluation.
Is weight loss surgery right for everyone?
The short answer is no. Surgery is not an option for everyone. We only determine whether a patient is right for surgery after a complete evaluation and discussion with the patient. Because weight loss surgery is a life-altering procedure, we want to make sure our patients are committed to making the lifestyle changes needed for a successful procedure.
What are the risks of weight loss surgery?
All major surgery comes with risks, and the risks are different for each patient. During your first appointment, your surgeon will explain your individual risk level. You can find a list of common risks here
How much weight will I lose? Will the weight loss be quick?
The amount of weight you lose – and how fast you lose it – depends on which weight loss surgery you have and how dedicated you are to making the required lifestyle and eating changes. Patients who have undergone the Resolute
procedure usually lose their maximum weight within 12-18 months of the procedure.
Can I become pregnant after weight loss surgery?
Under appropriate circumstances, pregnancy can be safe after weight management procedures (WMP). However, due to the severe risk of birth defects and associated medical problems, including, but not limited to, neural tube defects, malnutrition, low birth weight, prolonged neonatal ICU stay, and even autism, it is absolutely imperative that you avoid pregnancy for the first 18 months after the Resolute procedure. Additionally, we absolutely mandate that you not get pregnant during periods of acute weight loss.
In other words, do not get pregnant until your weight has been stable for at least a full year! This is for the safety and health of you and your baby.
What does it cost? Will my insurance cover the procedure?
is not covered by insurance. This type of surgery is typically covered only in the case of morbidly obese patients. There is a one-time cost of $13,999 which includes the pre-surgical consultation, the surgery and associated fees, 3 months of surgeon follow-up visits, and lifelong support and counseling. There are no additional or hidden fees. Financing with Prosper HealthCare Lending is available.
